Electricity Market Reform: Contracts for Difference and the Capacity Market

This conference will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss electricity market reform, as the new Parliament begins its work.
Delegates will assess the future of the Contracts for Difference regime and the Capacity Market auctions in the context of energy investment in the UK, following announcements that the European Commission is investigating Member State aid for energy supplies, as well as the practical and financial challenges of delivering EMR.
Further sessions will also focus on what more can be done to ensure the UK has the capacity to support growing energy demand, and the future of low carbon electricity generation and the next steps for policy.
